I Wanted To Hug All The Sounds Around Me ...
Written by Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee
I had to write words to what I felt as I walked ... silly words that made a song inside my head. By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee.
Walking my dog in the meadow surrounded by trees
Listening to the sounds around me
I felt ... I wanted to hug them all except ... one
My Dukester ran here ... there ... to sniff
I could hear his soft chuffing as he ran
Butterflies chased him as he went
I could hear a big bullfrog calling
Calling for who I don't know
Maybe his mama, girlfriend .. I don't know who
Birds whistled, sang their songs over my head
Flew all around to sit on limbs ... fly away
Something tells me they have babies around
Ur ... Ur.. Ur-rrrrr I could hear a rooster, too
I wonder if it was a chicken instead
Do roosters crow during the day?
I stood still for a moment to hear a quiet sound
It was the wind ... I could feel it on my face
I wanted to hug it all ... the wind too
A dragonfly flew close to my face
Did it look at me to see who I was?
Could it have been Tommy ... looking for his mommy?
In the distance I heard the sound of a chainsaw
I had been thinking I wanted to hug the sounds around me
Except the chainsaw ... I'd rather hear it in the distance
I stood with my eyes closed ... I hugged all the sounds around me
Except the chainsaw ... I hugged them with my Heart
I love those sounds ... it means the world around me ... is alive

Some silly words that came to me as I walked The Dukester this morning ... I don't sing ... yet I was walking singing ... 'I want to hug the sounds all around me'. Isn't that funny? :)
